5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most important books ever written, 14 Nov 2003
This review is from: Human Accomplishment: The Pursuit of Excellence in the Arts and Sciences, 800 B.C. to 1950 (Hardcover)
This book shows how the modern world is primarily as a result of Western Europeans. That is not to say that the conclusion of this book was written before the book, far from it. Charles Murray has exceled in the amount of research he has done to look at the great achievements and achievers of mankind, classify them in order of importance and then try and understand why it has been this way. It is not biased from a racial perspective but biased based on facts.
In a world where everyone is supposed to be production line equal it is rare to find a book that ignores this and focuses on what is really important, facts.
A superb book that will stand the test of time and should be required reading for everyone.
